Even though Halloween is not traditionally celebrated in Denmark, it has been gaining ground these past few years, and people have particularly taken in the tradition of carving pumpkins and placing them outside with lit candles to grin at passers-by.
Many would argue that the reason why it’s becoming increasingly popular, is that shops and grocery stores see an opportunity to boost sails (ooops, typo – should’ve been:) sales, but globalisation certainly has its share in it, and really, who cares – carving pumpkins is fun! 🙂
Ronja enjoys to eat the pumpkin meat while I handle the sharp knife. We offered Frida some as well, but she didn’t show quite the same enthusiasm. Mads took some pumpkin seeds to the kitchen and came back with the finished result half an hour later.
MMmmmmm – salted pumpkin seeds….. Yummy!
We may not be as creative as some, but we love him all the same – and personally, I think he’s related to the guy we had visiting a few years ago! 🙂
